DeMint: Obama Will "Get His Wish" To Raise Taxes
â€œThe president campaigned on raising taxes and getting rid of the Bush-era tax cuts, and heâ€™s going to get his wish. I believe weâ€™re going to be raising taxes not just on the top earners. Everyone is going to be paying more taxes in the country, and I believe thatâ€™s what the president wants," outgoing Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) said on CBS' "This Morning" today.
"If you look at the facts, we donâ€™t need more revenue, we just need to stop spending. The president is not going to stop spending. Heâ€™s proposed more spending. So itâ€™s hard to work with someone who I think is intentionally trying to take us over this cliff," DeMint also said.
